About FSGS


The Florida State Genealogical Society was incorporated as a non-profit organization 16 May 1977. The society was founded to promote the study and research of genealogy and local history. The society publishes source materials and family history, while encouraging seminars, workshops and similar educational meetings in the State of Florida.

Since 1978, the society has held a statewide conference in a different Florida city each year with nationally well-known speakers.
